My mum is the best

Our wedding is being done on a budget. H2B has been jobless for the last 6 months (just started a new job this week, but need to clear his overdraft, back payments on bills etc). We're just taken on a new house which will prob use most of his wages up to pay and my most of my wages pays towards our cars and bills etc, so we dont have much spare at the end of a month. We dont want to put the wedding back so we decided to just budget alot. Anyways, my mum has just offered to pay for my dress and shoes image considering she's making our cake too and helping with the evening buffet.

    Bless her, isn't that lovely. We didnt' expect any money off either of our mums as they are both on their own, both doing OK but not with a lot to spare but my mum gave me £2K and said do with it what you need so I've bought my dress and BM's dresses from it. Fantastic and so unexpected.
